Doldrums Egypt Single – Out Now
Recontextualing the bombshelter desperation of the Montreal noise scene into an 8 minute warehouse club jam that’s far more ambitious, sophisticated, and accessible than anything he’s attempted before, Egypt takes from UK and European electronic music but places an unmistakably North American attitude at its core. Doldrums’ music deals with the loss of the individual, a bodiless, Soma-fried peeling back of surface emotions to expose an attitude both utterly bleak and mesmerizing. On Egypt, his androgynous voice comes across mid-panic attack, floating in a sea of chopped up samples, disembodied vocals and primal percussion that almost does bring to mind an ancient, crumbling civilization.
